GCSE Grade Boundaries

GCE Grade Boundaries

You have your results – now what?

We hope that you were successful in getting the grades you were hoping for. If you have completed all relevant qualifications, you will:

  • Receive a GCSE (or BTEC) grade in August for each of your subjects;
  • Receive a certificate (issued in December).  Please note that any unclassified grade will not be certificated.

     

What to do if you’re happy with the results

You do not need to do anything if you are satisfied with your results; any certificates will be sent to the School and can be collected from 10am until 6pm on Thursday 13th December 2018. Please check the website for full information closer to the time.  Certificates that are not collected will be stored, but destroyed after 3 years.

What to do if you’re not happy with the results

Your results sheet shows what grades you got.  If the grades awarded are not what you expected there are a number of options available. Before any post results services can be requested, all pupils must complete the consent form that they have in their results envelope.  This confirms full understanding and acceptance that with any clerical check or review of results, marks may go down as well as up.  It further confirms that St George’s has permission to access a copy of individual candidates' exam scripts on their behalf, if required.

  • Pupils are strongly advised to discuss any concerns with the appropriate Directors or Lead Learners of subjects before making a formal request for a review of marking.
  • Grade Boundaries will be published on our website: /1102/exam-information-summer-2018
  • A webpage explaining Grade Boundaries can be found at: https://ofqual.blog.gov.uk/2018/07/20/setting-gcse-grade-boundaries-this-summer/
  • It is important to note that very few reviews of marking requests result in a change of grade, with the majority showing the original marking to be accurate.
  • Please note that the costs shown on the sheet in your envelope are per paper, not per subject. For example, maths was made up of 3 papers. 

From results day onwards, if you contact the school through the email address examreviews@st-georgescofe-thanet.kent.sch.uk we can give you greater detail about specific scores in a subject and advice on whether we believe a review is likely to be worth undertaking.  Please be aware that there are almost 500 pupils collecting results at this time, and that you may not get an immediate response.
